Meeting Description:

Natural Language Engineering of Legal Argumentation

Call for Papers

The topic of this workshop is the language, logic, and computation of legal
argumentation: linguistic analyses of legal argumentation show the lexical
items, syntactic patterns, and discourse structures; logics of argumentation
represent the argument abstractly and enable one to infer justified claims;
computational models support implementations of the logic allowing for automated
inference. The workshop not only promotes research towards understanding legal
argumentation, but more importantly promotes the development of interactive
prototype systems; such a system allows automated parsing and semantic
translation of arguments; comparison of statements input in natural language
relative to an existing complex argument; calculation of relationships between
statements; inference to justified conclusions in large networks of arguments;
and generation of natural language output or argument graphs.
